Day 297

One of the three worst days of surfing in past year. Waves were rough, big, and choppy… Forecast said 7 feet but they may have been bigger ones. And with the tide almost at dead high it was torture getting out. The wind was blowing around 30 mph.. I got worked. Numerous times. Beca came out in the rain to take pictures of my sorry display. She left after my 5th or 6th attempt to get past where they were breaking. I needed a board that i could duck dive. It took me a good 30 minutes but I finally got a wave. Just one..
